Russian Film Crew Returns To Earth

A Russian actor and a film director making the first move film in space returned to Earth on Sunday after spending 12 days on the International Space Station (ISS).

The Soyuz MS-18 space capsule carrying Russian ISS crew member Oleg Novitskiy, Yulia Peresild and Klim Shipenko landed in a remote area outside western Kazakhstan at 07:35 a.m. (0435 GMT), the Russian space agency Roscosmos said.

The crew had undocked from the ISS three hours earlier.

Russian state TV footage showed the reentry capsule descending under its parachute above the vast Kazakh steppe, followed by ground personnel assisting the smiling crew as they emerged from the capsule.

Peresild, best known for her performance in the 2015 film “Battle for Sevastopol,” expressed regret at having to leave the ISS.

After the landing, the 37-year-old actor told Russian Channel One, “I’m in a bit of a gloomy mood today.”

“That’s because 12 days seemed like such a long time, yet when it was all done, I didn’t want to say goodbye,” she explained.

Captain James Kirk of “Star Trek” fame, William Shatner, 90, became the oldest person in space last week on a rocket ship piloted by billionaire Jeff Bezos’ business Blue Origin.
